Lobby Lambeth Council 20th Nov
Labour pledges to scrap the bedroom tax – Now stop the evictions!
You may already be paying the bedroom tax. You may be among the 50,000 that are already building up arrears. You may be wondering how you are going to get through the next 2 years, when you hope that Miliband might get rid of it, if Labour wins the election. But we can’t wait for that so the first thing we need is for Lambeth’s Labour council to pledge NOW that nobody will be evicted for Bedroom Tax or Benefit Cap arrears. If Lambeth joined the other councils who have already refused to do the Tories’ dirty work, and called on Housing Associations do the same, this Government could be beaten. Tenant reps in Lambeth have applied for a deputation to speak to the full council meeting on November 20th. We want to tell the council that the shortage of housing cannot be solved by taxing or evicting the poorest tenants – the only solution is to stop the sale of council housing and to build more.
